what is cloud computing?

diagram.pngCloud computing refers to a computing system in which tasks are assigned through a combination of connections, service and software over a network. This collective of connections is known as ‘the cloud’. Computing at this level allows users to sort through a vast amount of data. For example, Google is currently the forerunner of cloud computing due to its need to produce accurate and instant results for the millions of search queries it receives every day. Other companies have developed web based operating systems that look and feel like Windows.

Advantages of Cloud Computing

One of the advantages of cloud computing is that both small and medium sized businesses can instantly obtain the benefits of the enormous infrastructure without having to implement and administer it directly. This also permits accessibility to multiple data centers anywhere on the globe. It also means that as the need for resources increases, companies can add additional service as and when needed from the cloud computing vendor without having to pay for additional hardware.
